Suzanne's Holiday CheeseBall
I have had made this cheeseball every Christmas for the past 20 years.
It is a special favorite of mine and my husband's as well as the kids.
Hope you enjoy it!
8oz. blocks of cream cheese, softened
1 10oz. block of sharp cheddar cheese, softened
1 teaspoon lemon juice
a dash of salt
4 dabs of tabasco sauce
a dash of garlic powder
half a jar of pimento
2 tablespoon chopped green pepper, or more to taste
2 tablespoon chopped onion, or more to taste
Let all cheeses soften to room temperature. Combine all ingredients
and shape into a ball. Roll in nuts if desired. For best results, refrigerate (covered) over night.
Fanny Ethel's Yeast Rolls
This recipe is an updated version of my grandmother's roll recipe from the late 1800's. My mother made these rolls every Thanksgiving and Christmas for as long as I can remember, and I began making them for my family on the holidays over 27 years ago. Everyone in the family loves them and we always tease my son, who can make such a feast of them that we made one recipe of rolls for him and one recipe for the rest of the family!! The only commercial rolls close to
these are the Sister Schubert rolls - but they are not near as good.
2 cups milk, scalded
5 tablespoons of shortening, melted
2 cakes/envelopes yeast
5 to 7 cups sifted plain flour
3 egg whites

Add teaspoon of salt last.
